    Howdy,

    Last night I purchased a brand new iPad 2 along with a clear cover for protection on the screen.

    I fitted the screen and charged the iPad over night as friends told me to do. When turning it on this morning it has been stuck on the black and silver apple screen and wont go any further. I did a hard reset (hold down on/off button and home button) which reset it. When I turned it on again the silver apple showed up then the screen fuzzed (random lines came up as if it was reseting) and then the silver apple came back up. After 10 mins of it sitting on this screen again I turned it off and connected it to the computer. Once again apple screen and NOTHING MORE.

    Can anyone assist me with a procedure to try OR should I return it?

    Cheers

    Something is not right there with that iPad. I would return it and get a replacement.

    Hey Rambler

    Putting it into DFU Mode made something happen... currently in progress of updating the iOS. Will let you know the outcome.

    Looks like it has failed.

    :( Bummer Broken right out of the box. Don't let it make you change your mind about the iPad. It' s a great product. I just bought a new home theater amp a couple months back, was DOA out of the box and this is a very high end amp. "Anthem A5" It just happens sometimes with products.

    Some how or another I've missed the steps where you first plug a brand new iPad into the computer which is running the latest version of iTunes, with is the normal (absolutely essential) initialization step... activation, registration, initialization.

    Am I wrong, or did you not do the above?

    I am wondering if the newer Ipads have the IOS 5 already installed. If that is the case, would they still need to directly hook up to itunes via the PC using the USB cord for activation?

    My two week old iPad came with the latest o.s. installed and I didn't have to connect it to the computer. In fact it has never been connected to the computer for anything.

    I cant even get it to go past the apple screen when you press the on button. Sadly error code 1611 and 1603 have come up telling me to restore the unit. I plan to take it back today after speaking to apple tech.
